I am working for an airline and stay in 5* hotels for work, but on my trips around teh world I choose hostels. This one I picked out after visiting a couple of places around Lavender Road in Singapore all of which were "backpacker-like" but I was nowhere greeted as friendly as in the Travellers' Inn. Jenny and Daniel keep the place spotless, have all necessary information at hand, never try to push you in any direction, offer discounted prices to some of Singapore's attractions and are happy to share their knowledge of the city's history or of Asia in general. They instantly replied to my mails and pointed out that the rooms with a shower were really small --- I appreciated this honesty. I felt very safe and comfortable in Singapore and found the prices appropriate for Singapore. I would always recommend this place to other travellers!

Room Tip: As te rooms with a shower are really small and the shared showers are really spotless I'd recomm...

The Travellers Inn was a bit of a shock initially as we were greeted with a long list of rules. However the staff helped us to plan our time in Singapore and we found it to be a comfortable hostel. I wouldn't recommend it for couples but single travellers or backpackers will find it to be pretty reasonably priced for Singapore and breakfast is included. The location is good as it's close to an MRT station and there are places to eat nearby.

I stay here for 2 nights in Jan 11, if you habitual to stay at hotels than don't try this, Staff is only after your Money, I never seen this type of mean & cheap persons in my whole life anywhere in this world ....
this is a typical school type hostel so there are signs everywhere telling you "don't do this", don't run AC, don't carry anything to eat from outside, don't walk here, at 0950 you are late for breakfast so no breakfast, there are very small rooms with lot of restrictions like a prison. pay for luggage, pay for this, pay for that, thank god I did not charged to consume Oxygen.
I spoiled my holidays with this hostel, I just book this hostel to stay near culture & local people of Singapore but experience was worst.

Room Tip: don't go there if you are habitual of hotels.

Daniel was very helpful and accommodating, he even helped us plan our trip. Best of all, we felt safe and comfortable during our stay in the hostel. I recommend this place to people who plan to visit Singapore.

This place is the best experience we had in Singapore!!
It is such a welcoming place to all people. The first important thing that Daniel & Jenny care about is the safety and comfort of all the guests which they specialize very well.
They are very kind people and think always what's best for the guests. They will give you all the information you need about every place in the amazing Singapore and they'll do it with a smile on their faces :)). Nice people nice place!!!
